About Nicole Burnard

Hey, I’m Nicole! I am a peripatetic drum teacher based in Buckinghamshire. I have taught in various academic settings for over 3 years. I have gained a wealth of knowledge from teaching primary-aged pupils to college students in both group settings as well as individually. I am currently teaching drums online and at Alpha Preparatory School in Harrow (ranked no.2 in the UK national preparatory school league tables - according to the 'Independent School Inspectorate').

100% 'Distinction' level exam results academic year 2020/21.

I believe it’s important that every learner I teach gets the best education possible - that’s why I make it my mission to cater to each individual’s needs through fun, interactive lessons that include teaching materials for various learner types and styles. I have training in first aid, safety in education and safeguarding young people. I am fully DBS checked with public liability insurance and hold a full clean UK drivers licence, allowing travel to students & schools.

A little about my background:

I am extremely eclectic musically, my tastes ranging from classical to metal and everything in between. I have over 8.5 years of experience playing in different bands, playing a mix of genres in various contexts including established London venues as well as touring around the UK. I love discovering new music with interesting stylistic elements that I can incorporate into my lessons keeping them both engaging & educational.

Online lessons are available via Zoom and Skype.

Available syllabi - Rockschool, Trinity College London & London College of Music Examinations (LCME).
